In a sense, trigonometry sits at the center of high school mathematics. It originates in the study of geometry when we investigate the ratios of sides in similar right triangles, or when we look at the relationship between a chord of a circle and its arc. It leads to a much deeper study of periodic functions, and of the so-called transcendental functions, which cannot be described using finite algebraic processes. It also has many applications to physics, astronomy, and other branches of science. It is a very old subject. Many of the geometric results that we now state in trigonometric terms were given a purely geometric exposition by Euclid. Ptolemy, an early astronomer, began to go beyond Euclid, using the geometry of the time to construct what we now call tables of values of trigonometric functions. Trigonometry is an important introduction to calculus, where one stud ies what mathematicians call analytic properties of functions. One of the goals of this book is to prepare you for a course in calculus by directing your attention away from particular values of a function to a study of the function as an object in itself. This way of thinking is useful not just in calculus, but in many mathematical situations. So trigonometry is a part of pre-calculus, and is related to other pre-calculus topics, such as exponential and logarithmic functions, and complex numbers.

The third edition of Cynthia Young's Trigonometry brings together all the elements that have allowed instructors and learners to successfully "bridge the gap" between classroom instruction and independent homework by overcoming common learning barriers and building confidence in students' ability to do mathematics. Written in a clear voice that speaks to students and mirrors how instructors communicate in lecture, Young's hallmark pedagogy enables students to become independent, successful learners. Varied exercise types and modeling projects keep the learning fresh and motivating. Young continues her tradition of fostering a love for succeeding in mathematics by introducing inquiry-based learning projects in this edition, providing learners an opportunity to master the material with more freedom while reinforcing mathematical skills and intuition. The seamless integration of Cynthia Young's Trigonometry 3rd edition with WileyPLUS, a research-based, online environment for effective teaching and learning, continues Young's vision of building student confidence in mathematics because it takes the guesswork out of studying by providing them with a clear roadmap: what to do, how to do it, and whether they did it right. WileyPLUS sold separately from text.
